Forums time of post uses GMT, not local time

Forums time of post uses GMT, not local time

The time stamp on Forum posts appears to be GMT time, rather than local time.
There does not seem to be a user setting for time, so the Forums default time needs to use Eastern US Time.
E.g. I am posting this at 3:13 pm

Re: Forums time of post uses GMT, not local time

Steve,

The new web site has a user setting for time zone. Do the following:
1. Log into the web site with your username and password.
2. Click the "User Details" link in the blue box on the left side of the page.
3. Click "Edit Profile".
4. Set the time zone to "America/New York" (i.e., Eastern time).
5. Click "Submit"

Once you've done this, your posts should appear with the Eastern time zone time shown when you view them on the BBC web site.
